Chicago premier of 'ICON EYE' (Sun Araw, M. Geddes Gengras, The Congos) plus Q & A with director Tony Lowe
Empty Bottle Presents is pleased to announce a new, utterly unique live experience incorporating art, speakers, live music and left field dance partying.
EBP and AdHoc.fm join forces to present ‘Banter’ a series running the final Friday of every month from April through October at Public Works (1539 N Damen Ave). ‘Banter’ aims to explore the sonic contributions from fine people in and around the experimental electronic and acoustic scenes while providing a forum to discuss esoteric subjects and then dance all that knowledge out in a room full of pretty pictures.
Here is how this installment of our 3-tiered explosion of culture will break down.
